Is there money to be made in street racing? What kind of car should I start with? ($25,000 budget) Am I retarded for even thinking of this? Pic minorly related

do you prefer your car to be bone stock or highly modified?

I'm in line to inherit a 1963 Corvette. Specs: 360 hp, 327ci, 4 spd munsey trans, saddletan interior & saddletan paint, 0-60 in 6 seconds, estimated value at $170,000. My question is would you keep and cherish it only to be driven 10 miles/year, or would you sell it and get something else...I'm conflicted.

Ok /o/, we all know what a bitch black cars are. What are some permanent solutions to removing swirl marks? I'm not looking for just a cover up. Is this something I can DIY or will I be better off having it done professionally? A suggestion I have heard before is wet sanding the paint. I'm really not comfortable with doing that myself, I'd probably fuck it all up. Are there any other methods that will work? Pic somewhat related. Iv got swirls but they aren't quite this bad

I'm looking for opinions on the 2010+ Toyota 4Runner Trail edition. I'm afraid that my 2002 Grand Cherokee will be taking it's final breath soon and I'm looking for a new SUV to replace it. unfortunately the new Jeeps have entirely lost the rugged factor that I think used to set them apart. one vehicle that caught my eye was a very sharp looking dark grey 4Runner, same body style as pic related but dark grey, had the stock wheels painted gloss black and had white letter BFGoodrich T/A KO tires, which I am a huge sucker for. it looked really sharp. so basically I'm trying to decide if one of them would be worth owning. I want something that can get around in all types of weather, haul my motorcycles and boat no problem, and is well-equipped with navigation and stuff like that. I also want something reliable, which Toyota seems to be known for. but. my biggest concern is the fact that they are only available with a 4.0L V6 producing 270HP and it looks like they weigh in at around 4,300 lbs. considering that the Jeep Grand Cherokee Hemi made almost 350hp and weighed about the same, that's fairly drastic and I would imagine the 4Runner would be quite sluggish. so. what similar SUVs are out there with more adequate power? I like the taller boxy profile, like the 4Runner or the extinct Jeep Commander. but I don't want anything as big as a Suburban and I really don't care for GM products at all. or am I just overthinking it? perhaps a modern V6 is just as good as my tired old 4.7L Mopar product? I guess that's why I'm here. share your thoughts!

such a great idea to introduce EGR and DPF in diesel vehicles. like its actually helping the environment that much more... all it does is bog the engine down and restrict airflow to make less black smoke come out of the exhaust at WOT. fuck that shit just look at an example of what the EGR pipe on a truck fuck. that is what didn't make it into the second combustion in your engine. what he fuck. please enlighten me why this shit exists? and fuck your prius.

I bought an '85 CJ7 4.2L 6cly yesterday and I took it to get the smog test (SoCal) today and it didn't pass. The smog test guy told me the carburetor is getting too much gas and that my car is running "rich". Now, this is my first car and idk what the hell he was talking about. I went to a repair place that specializes in Jeep cars and the guy told me that a lot of stuff needed to pass the smog test had been replaced with new parts, meaning the guy before me was trying to get it to pass the smog test, probably got tired of doing so, and sold it. Now, I bought it at a car lot, so by law they have to give me a car that passes the smog test. I'm in San Diego and I bought it in L.A. (drove it home without any issues). I'm wondering, if its not too expensive I can just do it myself or get the work done locally (the Jeep specialist told me I could call the lot and get it done or make an appointment with him to get it checked out, find the problem, get an estimate on repair costs, and get it fixed). My question is: * Does anybody know what could be wrong? *Any experience with this issue? *Could I realistically fix it myself? (It had an ignition problem but I replaced the solenoid starter and the starter itself today and its now starting up perfectly fine, keeping in mind that its my first car and I did it all based on youtube and the repair manual I bought at auto-zone) * Should I give it a tune up along with the smog repair stuff? (129,700 miles on it) etc. Also, Jeep thread >pic related My CJ

Get out of speeding ticket?

2 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
I imagine the people of /o/ are pretty used to dealing with cops and tickets. A few weeks ago I got a speeding ticket for 55 in a 30. Not sure if it matters but I'm an 18 year old guy driving a 2.0T A4 quattro. I already mailed the ticket in weeks ago saying I'm going to fight it, and haven't heard back. I'll be moving about 1,000 miles away for school in about three weeks. What should I do /o/? Is there any way to completely get out of the ticket? Maybe re register the car in the state I'm moving to?

Hey /o/ I was wondering if you guys could help me with a small decision that matters quite a bit. I've been having some issues on my toyota corolla 93 as it seems to be stalling after a complete stop and trying to do a right turn. It seems to happen quite randomly, but mainly when the engine is hot (if I drove the car for awhile). So I stop the car completely and I already feel the RPM going down a little, and when I try to do a sharp right turn it doesn't accelerate immediately and kind of jerks off a bit until it picks up. This has been going on since last year, but I've put it off since it only happened occasionally (very once in awhile), but today I felt the car was going to really turn off on me in the middle of an onramp while merging to a freeway. Most likely it was the up hill that almost made it stall completely, luckily it didn't. So right now I guess I should take it to a mechanic, but I'm kinda in some real debt right now and wonder if I could put off for awhile. What's your take? Does it sound like something urgent? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

engine shot, still owe money

5 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
being 18 and trusting of my parents at the time, I let them shove me into a 99 Grand Prix SE (3.1L) for 5500 with no money down from a Honda Dealership pre-owned lot. At the time it has 99,700 miles and was in about perfect condition. Had all of it's maintenance and oil changes and receipts to prove it. This isn't about how terrible of a decision that was. Here at 111,000 miles and a year and a half later, my dad's driving it (I got a Ninja 250 5 months ago) and he tells me that it's suddenly running rough and might need a new water pump. Fuck me, I still owe 3600 on this bitch. That shit's costly, but not expensive. Take it to CnC Automotive for a diagnostic to be sure, and it's the water pump and the lower intake gasket both leaking, and there's serious damage to the lower engine causing it to knock somethin serious. They quoted well over a grand for the lower intake gasket replacement alone, advising that the engine is still in poor condition and will more than likely have major mechanical failure in the very near future even if the jobs are done. They advised not putting any more money into the engine.

Would it be a good idea to buy/finance a 01 Cobra w/ 120k miles for 10k? Would the rebuild be worth it in a couple of years?

Has anyone put tires onto rims themselves before? I'm thinking of ordering some new winter tires but i'm wondering if it's worth it to get them installed at a tire shop with a machine or if you can just do it yourself.

Here's A Lesson For The Lesser Experienced Do-It-Yourselfers:

When servicing the brakes (i.e. replacing brake pads), there's nothing wrong with cleaning off the old grease from brake parts and applying new grease, even if you applied it during your previous service. I always clean my shit, whenever I replace my brake pads, since I have caliper pistons that occasionally stick (yeah, I could get new ones, but I had to replace more expensive parts) and cleaning and regreasing the parts would actually help make the brake pads last twice as long than they would if I didn't clean everything. My last brake pad replacement, I allowed this high school kid (I'm 25, btw) learn how to change brake pads on my car; this old guy, who had years of experience working on cars, was telling him what to do, while I watch, making sure nothing on my car gets fucked up. When he was putting the new pads on, I told him that he can clean the caliper pistons and apply new grease on it; the oldfuck interjected, claiming since there's already grease on it, there' no need. Being a betafuck, I didn't say anything; I just stood there in silence, glaring at him. In the end, the pads only lasted two months, instead of four; I'm not letting anybody else touch my brakes, unless service is needed that requires going to an auto shop. Pic unrelated, but entertaining.

I've been looking for a project car for a while and found this 1969 Pontiac Firebird for only $1300. http://sacramento.craigslist.org/cto/4640699161.html What do you think /o/? I've never seen a first gen Firebird that cheap before, even if it doesn't have an engine.
